pointed to a strike. and it just changed and if you thing it was political against obama or congressman like grayson. what were the difference forces at play that affected us not going in? and if you could talk about what happened this morning in iran as well. >> so, first of all, on the syria issue, the united states is already intervening in syria. the cia is supporting groups with weapons and strategic satellite imagery to enable them to engage with forces. the russians are involved. the iranians are involved. the united states is engaged already. but your question is interesting. i think what happened was president obama made this statement that for him a red line was the use of chemical weapons. and when it came out they used chemical weapons. obama is being asked by the press and al llies what are you going to do? and they were looking at a strike with maybe drones and tomahawks that would send a m s message and didn't intend for an exte extended air fair. and the obama was caught off guard on the opposition. and people on the left are fed wind up with the wars. the whitehouse mis

iran, sending a signal that they're not crazy about the interim deal the obama administration signed on to. another thing to watch for really quickly is the farm bill. negotiators are still trying to reach an agreement on a farm bill. if they can't get a deal, they're going to have to at least extend existing farm spending, so that's something that could be done. and finally, the senate's here for an extra week, they're going to be looking at a lot of nominations, particularly after the filibuster changes that senate democrats rammed through. among the big nominees are the new chairwoman of the federal reserve, janet yellen. >> host: and one more question for you. a number of articles in the last couple of weeks have suggested this is the most unproductive congress ever. why is this it so hard to get anything done on capitol ill? >> guest: well, it's divided government. you've got the senate run by democrats, the house run by republicans. whenever you have that situation, it's tough to get anything done. in addition, in the republican conference you have a situation where leadership

for the u.s. and iran, especially concerning the fact -- doesn't want to end sanctions and considering that it has considered the -- you said that in the article obama back down to benjamin netanyahu. and this is the same process that created this arrangement. and in the context of which i hope we don't lose our sense of rationality because a war in the middle east is going to make his expedition into afghanistan and iraq look like short-term lasting a dozen years or so. the united states for 30 years managed to prevent a nuclear war and they are able to convince both of those countries and the soviet union why we would have to go to war. and that would preserve their independence even if there is no solution with the iranians. the israelis have 200 or more and they are not one-sided we vulnerable and i am quite sure that we make a subsequent full-scale treaty with iran. >> and this would be preferable for military action. >> there's no reason to believe it wouldn't work if the united states was committed and was a proportion of power between the united states including nuc

maximalist position. >> dr. brzezinski i notice that you tweeted about iran. you said obama carried the best team since bush baker and congress is becoming embarrassed by net now who's threats to tate >> i think there is something to that. [laughter] >> you talked about that. >> we are all engaged and one might decipher what might be the particular motives but it's fair to say that prime minister netanyahu expected the agreement and i think he was surprised that it did. a lot of people in this country are surprised in one has to take note of the fact that this was an agreement not just between the united states and iran all those will -- although those were the principle parties but agreement that involves russia, china and europe and that was a very important step forward in the sense that it creates a framework on which to build and permits these countries also to in a sense an outcome which is vaguely being previewed without being overly specific. i think we all have a common interest in iran not -- into a -- total social failure and the source of violence. i think that is shared by

that his days were numbered as people said. and in august 2011, president obama said he must step aside. why do you think that happened? >> they completely misread iran and russia's commitment to helping him stay in power. when you have two major financial military intelligence provid providers who leverage was significant and both of those were not factored in. if you look at it from a recent history lesson and what happened in libya you could see why he was going quickly and they took that and plopped it in syria and thought it would be the same thing. you had the same elements happening in syria that happened in libya but they couldn't let it go. so, they ramped up their ability to protect him and try to at least increase the ability of the syrian regular military forces in a way that you would not see in libya or anywhere else. and because they didn't read what was going on, i think they missed the boat on how long he would stay. and what they did when they did the chemical agreement because there was no component of him involved in that agreement about any tenor in the regime, you

should proceed with sanctions, let the iranians know this is not un-american deal, this is a kerry-obama deal. and that the rest of congress is not behind them. the u.s. senate want to impose sanctions. this will be hard for them to say we are going to trust iran and hope they do the right thing for the first time in 40 years. host: william is up first in ohio, democratic caller. theer: congressman, evidence that world trade center building 7 was wrought down with explosives is real and proven. how much more trust does congress have to lose before it faces reality and acknowledges the need for a new investigation into building 7's destruction? guest: i don't think you need investigation. the way that those towers were brought down was by radical islamic terrorists. her investigation has show that. host: did you read the 9/11 investigation? guest: i did not. host: you think it was adequate. lake placid, florida. caller: good morning. ira member in the past, -- i whenber in the past president clinton was dealing with china. they had a problem with missiles and their guidance systems. clint
